...the Bible is the only inspired, infallible and authoritative Word of God
...there is only one God which exists in three persons: God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit
...in the Deity of Jesus Christ, His virgin birth, His sinless life, His miracles, His vicarious and atoning death, His bodily resurrection and ascension to the right hand of the Father, and in His future return to the earth to rule for a thousand years
...in the rapture of His church at His second coming
...the only means of being cleansed from sin is through repentance and faith in the precious blood of Christ
...regeneration by the Holy Spirit is absolutely essential for personal salvation
...in water baptism by immersion
...the redemptive work of Christ on cross provides healing for the human body in answer to believing prayer
...in the baptism in the Holy Spirit according to Acts 2:4 and that it's given to believers who ask for it
...in the sanctifying power of the Holy Spirit by whose indwelling the Christian is enabled to live a holy life
...in the resurrection of the saved and the lost; the one to everlasting life and the other to everlasting damnation
Two years after the founding of the Assemblies of God, members adopted 16 beliefs for the Fellowship. This list, known as the Statement of Fundamental Truths, remains virtually unchanged. Four of these beliefs are considered the major tenets of the Fellowship. They are:
1. Salvation Through Jesus Christ (John 3:3, 16, 17; Romans 10:13; Ephesians 2:8, 9) Salvation is received through repentance toward God and faith toward the Lord Jesus Christ. By the washing of regeneration and renewing of the Holy Spirit, being justified by grace through faith, man becomes an heir of God, according to the hope of eternal life.
2. Baptism in the Holy Spirit (Acts 1:8; 2:4; 17, 18, 38, 39) All believers are entitled to and should ardently expect and earnestly seek the promise of the Father, the baptism in the Holy Spirit and fire, according to the command of our Lord Jesus Christ. This was the normal experience of all in the early Christian Church. With it comes the enduement of power for life and service, the bestowment of the gifts and their uses in the work of the ministry.
3. Divine Healing for the Sick (James 5:14-16) Divine healing is an integral part of the gospel. Deliverance from sickness is provided for in the atonement, and is the privilege of all believers.
4. The Second Coming of Christ (1 Thessalonians 4:14-16; 1 Corinthians 15:51, 52) The second coming of Christ includes the rapture of the saints, which is our blessed hope, followed by the visible return of Christ with His saints to reign on earth for one thousand years.
